This 21 hour course package fulfills each requirement for license renewal for the Massachusetts electrician. It’s split into three main sections:

  • National Electrical Code (NEC) Overview
  • Massachusetts Amendments to the NEC
  • Professional Development

The NEC overview and Massachusetts amendments to the NEC work together to satisfy the 15 hour state requirement for law and code. The course starts out with a brief discussion of the code review process, an explanation of how the NEC itself is organized, and the new articles for 2017.

From there, we dive into the changes to many of the Chapters of the NEC, and provide an explanation of the code changes in everyday language. Because of the bulk of the changes, these are split into their own sections, starting with Chapter 1 of the NEC. This chapter covers the changes to Article 100 (Definitions) and Article 110 (Requirements for Electrical Installations). After that, we move into classes on two critical Chapters: 2 and 3. The reason why these are critical is because they address the most central NEC provisions for safe and reliable wiring materials and protective devices that affect almost every kind of electrical installation. We take care to explain the changes thoroughly so you can feel confident in your day-to-day operations.

After this comes Chapter 4 of the NEC, and addresses some of the rapidly updated provisions regarding safe and reliable installation of equipment for general use. Following this is a class on Chapter 6, which details all of the changes to the laws about electrical connections to specialized equipment. It’s important to keep in mind that, because this specialized equipment often sees the greatest innovation and most rapid changes of any in the electrical field, it’s revised frequently during every code renewal cycle.

The NEC overview finishes with a class covering Chapters 8 and 9. Chapter 8 addresses the wiring methods for communication systems, and includes important new rules on grounding. Chapter 9, which contains tables and annexes, works together with Chapter 1-4 to help an installer and designer use the NEC effectively.

The second portion of the 15 hour requirement is a class on the Massachusetts amendments to the NEC. Each amendment is presented in an easy-to-understand way, and is paired with a discussion of the reasons for and impact of the change. Over 50 amendments are covered, including the amendments that affect code enforcement, branch circuits, wiring and materials, and standby systems.

The 6 hours of professional development finishes off the license renewal requirements, and covers relevant code changes to the NFPA Electrical Safety Code, and NFPA Alarm and Signaling Code. We also will look at four of the Massachusetts amendments to NEC Chapters 5 and 7, and dive into selected changes to NEC Chapter 5. This chapter is considered one of the most difficult to master, as it handles situations that require special electrical precautions due to hazardous substances and higher risks.

The course finishes with a class on the significant changes to Chapter 7 of the NEC, which is one of the most varied chapters of the course. It includes provisions for emergency backup systems, direct current microgrids, and optical fiber cable as well as the new Article on the rapidly growing field of energy storage systems.

 

Each of the changes in the course are paired with an easy-to-understand explanation of what the changes mean and the reason why it was put into code. Throughout the course there are in-text questions to test your knowledge as you go. This package satisfies all 21 hours of required education, so that once you finish the course, you can rest assured knowing that all of your license is safe once again.

Thank you!

That was a very interesting course. It was much more engaging than a live class that usually is hard to stay awake for. The fact that you can do it at your own pace makes a big difference.
